12.16.12 SELU Preview

We don’t play Lehigh for a few days ya’ll. Let’s not look ahead of the Southland conference team coming into the Super Pit on the 16th. That’d be Southeastern Louisiana 1-6 (0-0).

This should be a relatively easy win like the Jackson State game. For whatever reason, we cannot shoot the ball well, especially from three. Our team average is at 26.1% where the SBC average is 33.8%, and the national average at 33.4%. However, we manage to score enough points to be an average enough team. Our problem? Allowing free throws. Well, allowing free throws and the other team making those shots. Our defensive free throw rate is 26.6. That is 26.6 points scored from the line per possession used per game.

I’m still holding out hope that this season will turn out better than the 4-6 record tells me it will but I’m not sure. Through ten games, we can’t shoot as well as last year, are slightly worse at defense, and our best player is playing slightly less efficiently.
